FreeBSD Last week it was BSD week: OpenBSD 4.5, NetBSD 5.0, and DragonFlyBSD 2.2.1. FreeBSD 7.2 completes the picture, with every major BSD now having a new and fresh release waiting to be installed on your desktop, laptop, or server.

I couldn´t agree more ...

The problem is that hal is written for linux and that big software pieces and proyects are starting to use it and depend on it to run as if hal was a universall piece of software when it´s actually not. It´s a linux piece of software.

In my humble and personal opinion, all BSD should get together to write a BSD hald and "standarize" (or so to speak) on it.

Same goes for filesystems (Hammer should be the one AFAIC), MTA (smtpd from OpenBSD), C compiler (PCC), etc, etc ... I´ve been seeing a lot of reinventing the wheel lately :s
